      Similar to the pasta/sprouted lentil recipe before, but using rice and adding liquid smoke:

      1/2 cup Rice (your choice)
      2 parts onion powder to 1 part garlic powder (to taste)
      salt (to taste)
      Olive oil (to taste, I don't measure it)
      Handful or two of fresh lentil sprouts
      1 Tsp (or 1/2 Tsp) of Liquid Smoke
      Tomato sauce (unsweetened) - however much you want
      Handful of ice burg lettuce, chopped

      - Start rice
      - Mix Tomato Sauce, onion powder, garlic powder and salt in a bowl
      - When rice is cooked, add to bowl
      - Mix in Olive oil and Liquid Smoke
      - Mix in Lentil sprouts, lettuce

      I had this bout an hour ago, except I didn't measure out the Liquid Smoke and may have added a little too much. In any case, it was super tasty

      Taco Salad

      1-2 pounds of ground beef
      1 head of lettuce
      1 or 2 tomatoes
      1 bottle of Kraft Catalina dressing
      1 can of olives (optional)
      1-8 oz package of shredded cheddar cheese
      1 Packet of Lawry's taco seasoning (plus water according to directions)
      1 Bag of Nacho Cheese Doritoes

      The night before, brown the ground beef and drain the grease. Add the taco seasoning and water and heat to boiling. Put into a container and store in fridge until the next day.

      Next day, dice the tomato, and slice the olives if desired to have them. Right before serving, in a super large bowl (a Jumbo ThastaBowl by Tupperware is good) add the ground beef, tomato, olives, some of the cheese, shred some lettuce and stir. Grab handfuls of Doritoes and crush them by hand leaving slightly big pieces. Pour the Catalina dressing over in small quantities and stir. A little dressing goes a long way and usually only half a bottle is needed unless you like more. Serve IMMEDIATELY.

      Another option I do is have the ingredients separate and make small batches over a few days as desired.

      Banana Trifle

      Ingredients
      2 packages instant banana pudding mix
      1 quart cold milk
      2 bananas, chopped
      4 cups heavy cream
      4 teaspoons vanilla extract
      1 cup confectioners' sugar
      1 (12 ounce) package prepared pound cake, cubed

      Directions
      Whisk pudding mix with milk until smooth. Stir in chopped bananas; set aside.
      In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, or cream will become lumpy and butter-like.
      Layer half the pound cake cubes, half the pudding, half the whipped cream, and half the crushed vanilla wafers in a trifle bowl. Repeat with the remaining cake, pudding, and whipped cream, and top with the remaining crushed wafers. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

      Note:Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

      ENJOY!

      I decided to mix up a combination of powders for a specific taste rather than combine them individually every time. The following combination yields a unique savory goodness that I use as a sauce base for dips, rice dishes etc.



      Strav's yum powder:

      4 parts tomato powder
      2 parts onion powder
      1 part garlic powder
      ½-1 part sea salt (depending on taste)
      1/4 part black pepper powder

      Mix well, keep dry.
      For yum sauce mix this powder combination with your favorite healthy oil. It's delicious and good for you!

      Yum I just found this recipe thread while searching for the thread on fizz drinks. I made a new 'shrub' mixture to mix with carbonated water .. 3-2-1
      3 organic grapefruit (zest from 2) 2 oranges with zest and 1 lemon with zest.

      Mix the peelings with just under a cup of any type of sugar, add cut up citrus and leave on counter a day to ferment.
      Refridge for a few days then add equal amts apple cider vinegar. Leave in fridge another few days then drain well thru cheesecloth.

      To use add a Tbs to glass of soda for a healthy alkaline drink.

      ( I also added lots of ginger to mix)

      I've got to plug this.

      Not my recipe - but I grew up eating this type of Italian dressing that we made from commercial packets at home. Now I just tried this version, minus the parsley which I didn't have. (Edit: didn't have the sweet bell pepper or smoked paprika either but it is still very good!) It is so good and so like the original (and so cheap in comparison) that it just screams to be shared - especially as the site owner gives all this info out for free:

      http://www.21stcenturysimpleliving.c...-good-seasons/

      Makes about 2/3 cup (equal to 5 commercial packets)

      Ingredients
      1 tablespoon dried oregano
      1 tablespoon dried parsley
      1 tablespoon dried, chopped sweet bell pepper*
      1 tablespoon dried, grated carrots**
      1 tablespoon garlic powder
      1 tablespoon onion powder
      1 tablespoon salt
      1 tablespoon sugar
      1 tablespoon lemon pepper
      1/2 tablespoon arrowroot powder (or starch)
      1 teaspoon dried basil
      1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
      1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
      1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
      1/2 teaspoon celery salt

      *Note on Dried Sweet Bell Pepper: If you do not dehydrate your own, Zatarain’s Dehydrated Sweet Bell Pepper, 3 oz bottle can be purchased in stores like Walmart in the spice section.

      **Note on Dried Grated Carrots: If you do not dehydrate your own, you can grate the small amount (1 tablespoon) of carrots needed and microwave on DEFROST for 3-4 minutes, they will dry to a crisp and be usable for this recipe.

      All other herbs may be purchased or home-dried. Blends may be purchased or homemade as well. See specific links above in the ingredient list.

      Directions

      Combine all ingredients in a blender.
      Pour into an airtight 8 ounce (1 cup) container and store away from heat, light, and humidity for up to 6 months.
      Shake well before measuring for each use.

      To Make Dressing

      Makes 1 cup

      Ingredients
      2 tablespoons dry mix
      1⁄4 cup cider vinegar
      1⁄2 cup oil
      3 tablespoons water

      Directions

      Pour vinegar and water into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
      Add contents of package; cover. Shake vigorously until well blended.
      Add oil and cover. Shake again until blended.
      Allow to marinate in the refrigerator overnight for best flavor. To maintain freshness, refrigerate dressing for up to 2 weeks.

      ________________________________
      Notes

      Ingredients in dressing will separate when refrigerated, especially when made with olive oil. To reuse, let dressing stand at room temperature about 1 hour and shake vigorously just before serving.

      To prepare with less oil: Complete steps 1 and 2 as directed above. In step 3, substitute 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup oil in place of 1/2 cup oil; shake as directed.

      For bread or vegetable dip: Blend 2 tablespoons of dry mix with 8 ounces softened cream cheese or 1 cup sour cream.

      For meat rub: Use 1 tablespoon of dry mix per pound of meat.

      More Lentil Goodness. Easy. Cheap. Nutritious:

      Smokey Lentil and savory vegetable on toast

      Serves 1

      Ingredients:
      1/2 brown onion, diced
      2 medium sized cup mushrooms
      1 clove garlic, diced into very small thin peices
      1/2 tomato, diced
      1 handful of turnip, cubed
      1 handful of 1 day sprouted lentils
      salt
      oil of your choice
      water
      toast of your choice (3-4 slices)

      Directions:
      (Lentil soaking and sprouting will have to start 2 days before this. It is a simple matter of soaking them once overnight, then draining the water, covering them with a towel to keep light out and each day uncovering to quickly soak/stir/drain once a day before re-covering for the remainder of the day - takes all of 30 seconds. Lentils will continue to sprout if you do this, and this is all the work required to keep them sprouting and not going off. However, the longer they sprout, the more 'plantish' they will taste. )

      1) Start toast
      2) Add onion and mushroom to pan under high heat (do NOT add oil at this point). While it starts to cook, cut up all other vegetable ingredients.
      2a)when the onion and mushrooms start to smoke - add a small amount of water, enough to keep it wet just for a few minutes before it's dry again. Do not soak. Adding just a little water helps the browning/carmelization process for the onions.
      3) repeat 2a a few times till onions and mushrooms start to brown, then add turnip, garlic, tomato and lentil sprouts. Mix thoroughly then repeat step 2a again once for the entire mixture or until turnip is tender.
      4) Add desired amount of oil to mixture, stir in for 15-30 seconds to gently heat and mix, then remove entire mixture from heat. The short time under heat and mixing keeps most of the goodness of the oil intact so that damage due to heating/frying is minimal.
      - Alternatively, one may remove entire mixture from pan and stir in oil or lower heat to a minimum.

      Salt mixture to your taste and serve with toast and any condiments you prefer.
